The Lui (“him” in Italian) Candlestick, is one half of the “Lui” and “Lei” – “him” and “her” - candlestick collection from Cosi Tabellini. Each of the candlesticks are made of solid pewter, and are handcrafted artisans in our Lombardy workshop. 

Candlesticks have been documented since the ancient Egyptian and Cretan periods, and are one of the earliest human inventions. The word “candlestick” is thought to derive from the Saxon word “candelesticca”, which was a piece of pointed wood which had a lump of fat with a wick placed in its middle stuck to it – so essentially a place to “stick” a burning candle.  

During the seventeenth century, candleholders made from a variety of metals, including pewter, silver, tin and iron were developed for the home, either placed on pieces of furniture or fixed to walls.  

The Lui Candlestick, square and more masculine in style compared to the “Lei”, is of a very simple design, and is evocative of the simple, early candleholders.  The Lui Candlestick complements any design scheme, either on its own, or together with its “other half”, transforming the atmosphere of a room through a combination of the soulful shining pewter and the candle’s gentle, flickering light.
